    i know ive got dusty selves i need to clean but cant be arsed to move card then put them back
  • tomorrow, i want my front room back!

  • I always do mine on Jan 6th I'm afraid. I love Christmas anyway and I adore my huge tree so leave it for as long as possible - and the 6th is my birthday so it's been a tradition for as long as I can remember! When I lived at home, we used to keep one of the Xmas ribbons out for my birthday cards to go on too.
  • mine comes down tomorrow ... depending what state im in lol .... latest it will be is saturday x
  • will probably be on the 7th, it's my brother's birthday on Sunday (he's 20) and like all the decs to be up for his special day lol

    Ours were taking down yesterday (honeymoon tomo) so we didn't come back to a load of stuff to do mid Jan

    Our tree was droopy too this year, that's me having the heating on too high as per!

    Happy New Year to you too.

    My mum always told me that the tree should come down on the 6th day, so I am sticking to a tradition of a life time. x

    Because of the general chaotic untidiness in our home and the fact that Earl & I don't get a great deal of time together (different work shifts & days off), we haven't put up a tree this year or paper chains & trimmings. I have a couple of nativity scenes, holly, mistletoe etc... too that haven't gone on display.

    However, we ALWAYS display our Christmas cards because if people are kind enough to share their good wishes with us in this way, it's only good manners to do so and of course it cheers the place up a bit!

    So all we have to do is take down the cards, probably we'll wait until 5th or 6th January for this!

    Bamba xx
